2009 Ford Focus SE 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Have to state this was a short rental, but first American Ford I've driven in 30 years. Great build quality and reasonably quiet. Acceleration on I-71/I-75 in uphill in Northern KY south of Cincinnati rather labored and noisy. Good brakes, but climate control needed a lot of adjusting. Am now really interested in 2010 Fusion Sport model as this Fusion at the price is a great buy.

Best Features

Exterior and interior finish. Ease of power seat adjustment, instrument panel, trunk space and interior room. Build quality.

Worst Features

A/C needed constant adjusting in 85 degree temps. Center dash is too busy and entertainment system controls too involved. 4 cylinder labored on hills and took on a food processor noise. Good auto trans though.
